Christmas Baking Round-up


It's been a few years since I did any serious Christmas baking. The main reason being that most of the treats are just not good for you. There's a lot of butter and sugar involved.

This year I took some vacation days the week before Christmas, and I was in the baking mood. I chose a few of my favourite recipes to make, and then packaged most of it up to give to family and friends. 

Here's my 2016 round-up.

Small Batch Brown Sugar Cookies (I added chocolate chips)

Melomakarona - Greek Christmas Cookies With Honey & Walnuts

It's been awhile since I had a christmas cookie baking fest. I have a few things planned for this year including these Greek Christmas cookies. These are not healthy at all, but they are very delicious. I made them 3 times last year because they were such a hit. For a vegan version, you may be able to use maple syrup in place of honey, but I haven't tried it.

Aren't they beautiful? The indents I made with the fork help the syrup absorb.
